Yeah, I know the gun is way too big. Photos online show the truck with the 25mm but no one makes it.

I scratch built some 'jury rigged' outriggers to try and keep it from flipping on it's side but whatever, either way it was an extremely fun project. The Miniart kit is very detailed and fairly finicky build, excellent model in the end however, I will get another.



This was my entry at Auburn this year, (minus two of the figures) wasn't completely satisfied as this was a little rushed for me, I actually worked on it in the hotel room on and off for a few days before the show. It was a really great show with a ton of great people. Some I knew, some I met for the first time, all made the trip that much more fun. What a blast. Pictures are a little crap but I'm still trying to recover.






Anyways, feel free to comment, good bad or indifferent.

Beautiful work!!! You captured the shattered windshield and side window perfectly - looks like the real thing. Do you know if the Soviets used safety glass in their vehicles?

Howdy Ken, that worn finish is very nice. I found your blogspot and will give the technique a shot. Great putting a mug with a name this weekend past too.
Outta here, Mike sends . . .

And there's nothing with the model. So simple and so different. The shattered glass, the open hood and that lovely muddy look.
Top class model Ken.
Regard's, Dave.

Whoa that is good bro----and like nothing I've seen from you.
OK--I like how you focus on Allied builds and I really like your take on them---
This one however, I think shows an artistry and depth of finish beyond your others--
the groundwork is GREAT , the scene is balanced and tidy, the figures are good
but the GAZ truck is astounding! The wood and whitewashed camo are fantastic---stunning paint effects throughout man----just so well done
